of modernism, it had its rivals in brussels, barcelona, and munich. but it was a time of growing tension in western culture, of continued rapid industrialization, of imperialism abroad and rivalry within the states of europe, and, at the same time, scientific breakthroughs, which not only questioned our way of seeing the world, but the very nature of reality itself-- planck's quantum theory, einstein's theory of relativity, freud's work on psychoanalysis. it was in 1900 that freud wrote his interpretation of dreams, a prophetic work in view of the tragedies of modern western history. freud wrote and published it here in vienna. vienna, 1900, was one of the intellectual and artistic centers of europe. in tracing modern art's emergence in the 20th century, vienna embodies, perhaps more than any other city, the struggle to break with the ossified traditions of the 19th century to achieve a modern art, an art for the 20th century. turn-of-the-century vienna was a prosperous and technologically advanced society, peaceful and secure, the center of the austro-hungarian empire, ruled over for mo

company. it is the insurance that is purchased by other insurance companies as back up insurance. munich re is a company that in one sense that compiles data in a bloodless, profit oriented way in order to figure out what the costs are going to be related to storm hazards among other disasters. this report was put out on october 17, before the storm, before we had any sense it was going to be as extreme as it was. it reported that basically extreme weather has gotten more frequent, more intense, particularly as it happens in north america, and the insurance company is saying that they are now beyond the debate over whether climate change is real. they have accepted that, and they are calling on industry to deal with it as a statistical reality. i thought that was a nice accompaniment to the scientific research because the munich re guys are not doing basic climate research, but simply serving the money they pay out over time and saying, we have been paying out more billions in recent decades then we had anticipated and see a trend and we can see no explanation other anan the relationship

re and munich re have largely shrugged off concerns over the costs of super storm sandy. even the primary insurance group allianz said sandy would not impact figures. next guest says the impact of the storm will be largely digestible for the industry. joining us is stefan. thanks for joining us. how much can we discount hurricane sandy and how much might it be of benefit in terms of helping to harden rates? >> well, as far as it looks now, it's not really an event basically having a big influence on rates. we did have a lot of capital in the reinsurance industry and in that regard, plenty of capacity. so estimated 17 to 20 billion for insurance losses whether not really be enough to have a real impact on pricing. but i think psychologically, it will help to shape rates going forward and especially also next year into july with renewals in the u.s. and worldwide having a small positive impact. but generally the average reinsurance rate environment will not change based on sandy loss only. >> what's your take on the insurers generally speaking, do you like them as group, what ar
